Inheritance by sensor type



I have created a group for my servers. Each server in this group has different sensors such as disk usage, memory usage, etc. I need to run Disk usage sensor every 24 hours. Is there any way to define scanning interval on group level for only disk usage and then all devices within this group get their scanning interval from group level automatically.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, inherited scanning intervals apply to all sensors beneath the parent object.
Please use multi-edit in order to modify multiple objects at once.

Kind regards,
